‘I’m so proud of how far you’ve come against all odds that have been thrown at you,’ she added. ‘Here to Alana’s last year of high school. Excuse me while I ugly cry lol ❤️. We love our lana @honeybooboo.’

On their show, Honey said she did not know if her mother would come to her high school graduation in 2023 if she asked her to.

On Mama June: Road to Redemption she told her therapist, ‘I’m kind of over it at this point. I think I’m at the age where I’m not like sitting there like, oh I just wish my mommy was coming home. Like Mama is gonna do what Mama is going to do.’

It’s a good thing Pumpkin has stepped in. 

In June Lauryn was granted sole custody of Alana. 

This agreement allows mom June to call Alana daily but Lauryn determines the visitation rights. And Mama has to pay $800 per month in child support. The setup ends when Alana turns 18.

Mama has had a challenging past few years.

‘I’m very thankful for her because the situation could have been a lot different,’ Mama June told Page Six in June.

‘Pumpkin stepping up, I’m very grateful because it could have turned into a bad situation. At the time Alana went to go live with Pumpkin at the beginning, I couldn’t even take care of my own self — more or less take care of anybody else.’
